[Home]404 error

HomePage | Recent Changes | Preferences

The 404 error is one of the standard response codes of the telnet protocol on which the web's HTTP is based. The first 4 indicates a client error such as a mistyped URL. The middle 0 refers to a general syntax error. The last 4 just indicates the specific error in the group of 40x, which in this case is "URL Not Found".
